Mode Matching Method

Mode-Matching (MM) method + derivations: The electro-magnetic fields inside the structure under consideration are expanded into known, analytic solutions of Maxwell's equations for similar geometries. The boundary conditions are fulfilled using a Galerkin procedure on the element surface. In the normal case only a few of these (some 100) analytic solutions (modes) are needed for sufficient convergence of the results, so this method is very fast and has low computational requirements. Because, there are only few structures with known, analytic solutions of Maxwell's equations (e.g. rectangular + circular cavities + waveguides), this method is applicable only to certain geometries and thus lacks some geometric modeling capabilities (inclusion of screws, rounded corners, draft angles, etc.)
